Devices

Devices are producers and consumers of ClearBlade IoT Platform resources. Often, they are sensors that generate data, that is then processed by the ClearBlade Edge or Platform. In other cases, a device may be a hardware controller, which consumes commands and controls a motor or actuator.

Purpose

Devices may not be IP-enabled and may require physical communication protocols, as such as BLE or Zigbee to communicate. Often times, a gateway is an IP-enabled machine used to communicate with one or more sensors.
